To be used in conjunction with Land Rover vehicles which are fitted with the next-generation infotainment system, InControl Touch Pro, the Land Rover Route Planner App allows you to navigate from door to door. Before setting out from your home, set your destination from your smartphone and you’ll be directed to your Land Rover as the app detects your vehicle's location. The smartphone app will then automatically sync with your Land Rover's navigation system using the Cloud so your car will be ready to take over navigating soon after you get in. Once you've finished your in-car journey, navigation is then handed back to your smartphone, which provides any final public transport and pedestrian directions to your final destination.
In addition the Route Planner app also allows you to pre-plan trips and holidays by searching for places of interest or restaurants and saving them as favourites from your smartphone. You will then be able to access these saved locations from the in-car navigation system at a later date.
Requires registration of an InControl Navigation Account either from your Land Rover's navigation settings or landrover.here.com.
As we systematically introduce InControl, specific features, options and its availability remain market dependent. This app requires that your vehicle be fitted with its relevant connectivity package as well as a Micro SIM card with a suitable data contract.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Ratings and Reviews
Whilst you can search and find many places (as it should) you cannot rename a location to something meaningful once saved as a favourite. You have to use the cars Nav system to edit the name !! Why not in this app?
As with many things InControl, this appears to be designed by engineering teams not actual people who use the system. Don’t JLR do usability testing?
InControl Touch Pro is very good. A huge step up for JLR, but I wish they’d employ someone who understands UI and especially UX. Some simple fixes, features or alterations to this app and the in car systems would make using InControl so much better.
Awful, just awful
Don’t be swayed by any of Landrover’s apps. They are pretty much all rubbish and this is no better. This app is so infuriating. I’m trying to plan a route from a place here in Austria to a place in Italy. First, the app insists that the car is about 280 miles away in Germany. So I suppose the £96,000 Vogue that I can see through the window is just a cardboard cutout then. I cannot get the app to see the car here. Second, whenever I try to plan a route, it insists that it is too far to walk. There is nowhere in the app where I can tell it that I’m not walking, ‘cos I’ve got a RANGEROVER!!!! Landrover have done these apps on the cheap. Better if they had not offered them at all. Waste of time.
Limited route planning options
Aside from the issue about actual location of the vehicle, the route when planned remotely does seem to transfer with ease to the car, but, route planning is limited. The system demands an actual address as opposed to a point on a map... no use for a vehicle designed to go off road! Also there is no ability to decide the route from a to b, with the system only permitting you to go the way it wants . Yes you can add a waypoint but only if you have an actual address ... as noted above. The ability to ‘select from the map’ is surly essential?
